Pirlo’s Gone Wild (& Wizard-y)

21 May


Watishista mygypsyspirit had me howling when she sent me this video of Drunk!Pirlo (cousin of Drunk!Xabi) perhaps? He was gone at Juve’s celebration. How gone, you may ask?

So gone that he was photographed passed out in the front seat of the bus.

Drunk-PirloPirlo is one of my all time fave players and he’s usually so…stoic. I’m finding this all very hilarious. Maybe it’s because he just turned 35 on May 19 and he was celebrating that milestone as well? I dunno but I’d give good cash money to see him and Xabi drunkenly dancing together.

Jeep has a whole series of Pirlo videos (and apparently more to come) under the hashtag #PirlotheWizard with Andrea performing all sorts of tricks including turning out the lights with a soccer ball and wearing loafers san socks (harder than it looks to pull off. The latter, I mean)

35 years without feeling it

And that makes 32

Gotta keep my eyes peeled for the rest of this series. When he pops his head back in at the end of the first episode, I cracked up.

And honestly, we all know Pirlo’s got a wicked sense of humor. If you haven’t yet read his autobiography, I Think Therefore I Play, here are some choice excerpts.  I am saddened that he plays as Barca on Playstation, but the last link detailing his torture of Rino Gattuso (which came via watishista P) is comedy gold. (And oh, what might have been!)
